Obviously, people pull a lot of happiness, beauty, & inspiration from the music they listen to. Music is very important to me, as I am guessing it is for most people.

It’s nearly 2am, & I can’t sleep a wink. Here are some songs that tickle my fancy.

All-time favorite songs:

01. “Cotton Fields”- Creedence Clearwater Revival (originally Leadbelly)

02. “Poison”- Alice Cooper

03. “Ophelia”- The Band

04. “I’m On Fire”- Bruce Springsteen

05. “Memphis, Tennessee”- Chuck Berry

If you’re a sweet pal of mine, you may be wondering why Tom Petty & Thin Lizzy are not listed. Simple. I could name about 33 of my favorite songs for each of them. It was too hard to chose one song to put on this list, so I just left both of them out. You can’t really go wrong with any Tom Petty or Thin Lizzy.

Enjoy these tunes.
